It’s alleged several stars were caught up in the banned do, sparking a frantic meeting among Ibrox powerbrokers today.

The club said on its official Twitter page: “Rangers are aware of an alleged incident which is subject to an internal investigation. We will make no further comment.”

Police Scotland confirmed they’d dished out fines to those they caught up in the lockdown breach party at the gaff in the city’s trendy Hyndland area.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We received a report of a gathering at a property in Hayburn Lane, Glasgow, around 1.10am on Sunday, 14 February.

“Officers attended and those in attendance left.

“Ten people were issued with fixed penalty notices for breaching coronavirus regulations.”

The claims come months after two Gers players  Jordan Jones, 26 and George Edmundson, 23, were given fixed penalties for a similar offence and shipped out of Ibrox on loan.

The Gers’ club doctor hit them with a two week quarantine order after the shocking breach in November.

 

In August, Celtic stopper Boli Bolingoli sneaked off to Spain for an overnight stay without telling anyone at the club.

Raging boss Neil Lennon tore into the wayward 25-year-old for putting his team-mates and Kilmarnock players at risk after playing a game after returning. He’s also been sent on loan.

Lennon said: “It is one of the worst behaviours from an individual I have come across. I just can’t fathom it. 

“Following this First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, issued a warning to footballers.

At her daily briefing in August she said “Consider today the yellow card. The next time will be the red card.”

Celtic chief Peter Lawwell then had to apologise for a controversial winter break for the team to Dubai where two players were caught the bug and half the squad had to isolate.

Eight Aberdeen stars were also caught breaking rules by going to a bar last August.
